Read Ephesians 5:15-20
5:15 Be careful then how you live, not as unwise people but as wise,
5:16 making the most of the time, because the days are evil.
5:17 So do not be foolish, but understand what the will of the Lord is.
5:18 Do not get drunk with wine, for that is debauchery; but be filled with the Spirit,
5:19 as you sing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs among yourselves, singing and making melody to the Lord in your hearts.
5:20 giving thanks to God the Father at all times and for everything in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.
The Psalm, the reading from Proverbs and this reading all point to the importance of seeking wisdom. Seeking wisdom is not the easiest or most natural path. The alternative presented in verse 18 is getting drunk. Here the writer to Ephesians invites us to seek wisdom with the help of God the Holy Spirit.
Fill me with psalms, hymns and spiritual songs. Grow my hunger for wisdom. Teach me to live in wisdom.
